With Leopold König set to leave the team, Team NetApp-Endura that will be known as BORA in the 2015 season, has signed a replacement leader for the stage races. Dominik Nerz will take over the role and get his first chance to lead a team in a grand tour.

 

Starting next season, Dominik Nerz will be switching to the pro cycling team built around the new German name sponsor BORA. The 25-year-old has signed a two-year contract. Nerz will become the captain in the team for demanding stage races and the Grand Tours.

 

“I see an enormous opportunity for myself in the new team," Nerz said. "I’ll be given the trust to utilize my full potential, and to take on the role as a captain for the key stage races.

 

"What’s more, I’ll be able to do this in a German team. There’s something very special about being there from the very beginning with the team’s reorientation and to grow along. Germany is getting interested in cycling again, and with this team we're making the right step forward. I’m already looking forward to being part of this development.”

 

“With Dominik, we have got the dream candidate for our new team. He is Germany’s best GC rider, has his most successful years still ahead of him and he’s ready for a leadership role. This makes him perfect for what we need. With us, he’ll get a demanding racing schedule and the necessary team support to show his abilities as a captain. I am confident that Germany will soon take pride not only in its successful sprinters and time trialists, but in its GC successes as well. The goal is clear: Dominik is a candidate for the top 10 in a Grand Tour,” says Team Manager Ralph Denk about his new rider.

 

Nerz, who finished the Vuelta a Espana 2013 in 14th place and this year in 18th place in the overall rankings, is skilled in both climbing and time trials. This means that he is bringing the decisive qualities for the key stage races. In the past, his skills have been applied to support his captain. Now he will take on the leadership role himself. With this shift, Nerz is returning to a German team from four seasons with the teams Liquigas – Cannondale and BMC. He started his professional career in 2010 with Team Milram.
